The Kansas Dental Charitable Foundation is hosting a free dental clinic.
The 18th Kansas Mission free dental clinic will be held at Robert W. Plaster Center/Weede P.E. building on the PSU campus. Clinic doors will open at 5:30 a.m. on April 26 and 27th.
There will be no appointments or reservations and patients will be seen on a first come, first served basis. Treatment options include fillings, extractions, and dental hygiene. Organizers plan to treat an estimated 1,600 patients during the two-day dental clinic.
Support for the project comes entirely from donations and grants. The project will cost nearly $160,000, but will leave behind approximately $1.2 million of donated dental care in return.
The clinic will include an estimated 70 dental chairs and it is expected that nearly 1,000 volunteers, consisting of dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, medical personnel, and community volunteers will donate their time and talents to treat patients. Since its inception in 2003, the Kansas Mission of Mercy has been provided care to 28,971 patients with a value of $17,886,906.
